First published in 1913, Oswald H. Latter's "Bees and Wasps" is a fantastic guide to the common varieties of bees and wasps, providing detailed descriptions of their habit, habitat, natural history, anatomy, and much more. This comprehensive handbook contains a wealth of timeless information and is not to be missed by those with an interest in the bee keeping and entomology. Contents include: "Introduction", "Fossores or Digger-Wasps: Pompilid Section", "Fossores or Digger-Wasps: Sphegid Section", "Diploptera (double-winged wasps)", "Bees (Anthophila, or flower-lovers)", "Long-pointed-tongued Bees (Apidae)", "The Social-bees", "Some Structural Features: The Sting and the 'Tongue'", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on bee keeping.
